To @BBC management:

Anyone with a sense of decency and respect for justice knows how inexcusable it is that @BBC gives vital oxygen to the demands and 'victimhood' of the #SbarroMonster [here:…] while ignoring us and the other families of her victims.

Unless you speak Arabic, you're likely unaware that @YouTube's version of the same @BBC video clip had 275,000 views by Friday when it was turned private and thus unviewable. See the translation into English:
Whatever @BBC does now, 9 days after its @BBCArabic "Trending" TV show went to air and online, is largely irrelevant. In targeting Arabic-speaking audiences globally, they articulated a message of emphatic support for the "rights" of fugitive felons like #Tamimi. Disgraceful.
Outraged? Please upgrade it to something concrete and constructive. Sign our petition (no need to be an American) urging the US to raise its voice and press the Jordanian authorities to extradite Tamimi to Washington as the 1995 treaty requires:

The clip of the most wanted female fugitive alive, Jordanian VIP/bomber #AhlamTamimi, is still up on @Facebook. The page belongs to an entity absurdly calling itself (in Arabic) "Prisoners of War". Remember this when @Facebook next boasts of its high-minded #CommunityStandards.
The #AhlamTamimi paean to Arab terrorists […] is now the most popular post on this @Facebook 'prisoners of war' page. Tamimi, an @FBIMostWanted, is kept safe from @TheJusticeDept in flagrant breach of the Jordan/US extradition treaty... by Jordan. Image
It's now 09:00 EDT Wednesday and the speech by the most wanted female fugitive alive, an @FBIMostWanted who boasts of killing children in a pizzeria including our daughter, remains up and accessible on @Facebook as it has been since September 11. @Facebook's response? You know. Ahlam Tamimi, a Jordanian I...

Jordanian officials assert in off-the-record briefings that @FBIMostWanted fugitive #AhlamTamimi has no role in kingdom's public discourse. Has anyone told *her*? Celebrating 9/11 this week, she Zoom-lectured how media must do more to back #PalArab terror. Image
Calling all news reporters: What would get you to ask the embassy of Jordan in whatever country you're based (or @RHCJO in Jordan) for a reaction? How do they explain harboring a confessed killer of children on the run from their most important ally's criminal justice system?

Sure the Jordanians will squirm. The freedom and fame of this @FBIMostWanted killer is something they prefer to hide. But with #AhlamTamimi a celebrity in Jordan - hero, icon, inspiration to more terror - isn't this why we need an enquiring news industry?

Occasionally, complex political entanglements come down to a basic choice: evil versus good. The gleeful killer of children on the left is shielded from US justice by the Hashemite Kingdom of #Jordan. The smiley innocent child on the right is our murdered daughter. Pick a side.

When you have decided, please show you are with us by signing our petition. We're asking the US government, which in large measure keeps Jordan afloat, to raise its voice and explain to Jordan its obligations under the 1995 treaty. Help us in this.
The thousands who viewed the tweet above might be startled to know Jordan's king who shields the woman on the left, a confessed bomber who admits to deep murderous bigotry, hosted an international conference this week *against* terror.

See who attended:…

Today, Sunday August 9, is the anniversary of the 2001 Battle of Sbarro Pizzeria. Arnold Roth wishes others knew what he knows about Malki’s killer.…
The Battle of Sbarro targeted children, family groups, mothers with infants in strollers. The bomb was a male human being. He was attached to a case filled with explosives enhanced for flesh-ripping purposes with shrapnel. A TV reporter selected the site and planted him there. Image
The reporter/bomber went on to make a successful TV career in Jordan, giving standing-room-only speeches in other Arab countries. But no one wants her more than the @FBI does. The US announced terror charges against her in 2017. But #Jordan shields her, blocking her arrest. Image

When major parts of the Arabic-language media focus on the world's most wanted female fugitive, Jordan's #AhlamTamimi, it's not to say "How deplorable that we've made her an icon". But, as below, to raise concerns whether Jordan will succeed in keeping US law enforcement at bay.
A reminder to please get behind our efforts to see justice (yes, justice) done. It isn't going to happen unless there's significant US pressure.
If you haven't noticed: Jordan's @KingAbdullahII is one of the world's most interviewed, most welcomed-in-Washington leaders. Yet no investigative reporter, no justice-minded editor, no Mid East analyst has asked a single question of him about his harboring the #Sbarro bomber. Image

Here's Jordan's foreign minister warning again about the great threat that terrorism poses to the kingdom. Do we really know what @AymanHSafadi means? What kind of terror?

He's the same foreign minister of Jordan who's on the record promising the kingdom will hold tight to its beloved pizzeria bomber #AhlamTamimi, wanted on terror charges in Washington:…

Why are we, and not the world's media, the ones telling you this?
Tamimi boasts of what she did, of the children she blew up. She's adored for it in her country, Jordan. Her freedom and her fame continue as of today even while the US offers $5M for her capture and conviction. But she's not in hiding.…
